Portia was great to work with! She was always there when you had any questions or needed anything. She was very supportive through the process and happy to send time together explaining the process. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to friends & family!

Listing Sold, Clairemont Mesa West, Lauras709

I had the pleasure of working with Portia Metras when she acted as the listing agent on a home being sold through the organization that I'm employed by. Portia was very professional throughout the transaction. We received multiple offers and were able to enter escrow quickly and close escrow without any hiccups. I would definitely recommend working with Portia and her team. Her service was outstanding!

Portia went above and beyond in every aspect of our home sale! My wife and I were moving across country so had to sell our townhouse in Encinitas quickly and she helped do exactly that. She helped us price our place perfectly and it was under agreement in four days for more than we had originally expected! She was knowledgeable of the local market, transparent with all info from the beginning to end, explained everything in detail, communicated quickly and effectively, and of course put up with all of our little (probably annoying) questions and requests. We had two offers after only four days on the market and she helped us chose the best offer package which we truly believe helped us get the most we could have and made things go as smoothly as they could have once we accepted the offer. I would recommend Portia to anyone who needs a realtor for a purchase or sale in the San Diego or North County area. Thanks for everything Portia!

Purchase and Listing Sold, San Marcos

We worked with Portia to both purchase this home and sell this home. She is wonderful person to work with and she goes above and beyond to treat you like you are her only client. Portia is very involved in the process, she has great marketing tools, she has many relationships with people you need in the process of buying or selling your home and she always has your best interest at heart. Portia really cares about her clients and always guides them in the right direction. Portia loves what she does and it shows in her work ethic and desire to make things happen for her clients. Thank you Portia!

Listing Sold, Carlsbad Beach, lilybyrneandjace

Portia sold our beautiful beach home in Carlsbad, CA. Her attention to detail was amazing. She informed me immediately whenever any activity was occurring. Held multiple events to facilitate the sale. She provided the information required to create an accurate and attractive listing, drawing many people through my home in attempt to seal a deal. I don’t know what I would have done without Portia’s tireless, positive efforts on my behalf.

Highly recommend Portia! She made the process very smooth and easy. She made sure everything was in line at every stage and anticipated many of our questions. She would start doing the research and inquire about things before we even formed questions to ask. She would help us prioritize our time in reviewing documents by order of urgency. She also had great recommendations for trusted service people and contractors that she had worked with before. Portia always kept a positive attitude and listened to our wants and needs. She was professional, personable, and a complete pleasure to work with.

Home Purchase, Clairemont Mesa, Lorri Dunn

We started looking for a home to purchase and ended finding one on our own right away! We were working with another realtor for a brief time but they were not the right fit for us. We were referred to Portia and are so grateful we found her! She is amazing! We needed someone that could walk us through the process as we were first time home buyers, and we needed to move quickly. She made it happen for us even with other offers in on the property. She also has a great network of real estate experts from brokers to lenders, to home inspectors. We trusted her and she never let us down. Portia’s warm and caring personality, as well her professionalism and desire to get her clients the best outcome possible make her an amazing realtor and one of the best in her field. We will choose Portia for all of our transactions moving forward. We are so lucky to have her on our side.

Listing Sold, Linda Vista, reneer448

Portia was the selling agent on the sale of a property to benefit my organization. Portia is hard-working, dedicated and a consummate professional. She is extremely responsive and on top of every detail. She does all the heavy lifting for you to handle anything that needs to be done to get a home ready for sale and to close the deal. She is a strong negotiator with the other agents and always has the client's best interest at heart. Portia is extremely knowledgeable about the market and pricing and did an excellent job securing the best sales price possible. She is always pleasant and positive and a real asset to have on your team.

Great work!!!  Things could not have been smoother.  I love my new house.  The sale of the old one went off without a hitch, (one that was handled by Portia anyway), and all the documents and extraneous inspections were handled with ease by everyone that was involved in the process.  Portia did her best to see that I was not inconvenienced throughout this whole process and took care of things that were not part of her responsibility so that I wouldn’t have to be pulled away from work anymore than necessary.

I would work with her again in a heartbeat.  She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.  Thanks to everyone at Coldwell Banker for a great job, but especially to Portia.  She is a delight.  It’s so nice to work with someone who is truly good at her job and can operate with high standards of ethics and professionalism.  I’m sure others have noticed the same thing.

Review on Zillow:  Portia Metras is truly an exceptional realtor.  She excels in understanding the client’s needs and desires, providing a realistic assessment of market conditions and then setting out to achieve the goal.  Ms. Metras works tirelessly to meet or exceed her client’s expectations, providing frequent and substantive updates.  As your agent, she informs and educates you on every aspect of the real estate transaction.  Most of all, you know that she is always working with your best interest in mind, while being very professional and ethical in all of her dealings.  She really goes the extra mile.  Finally, but equally important, Ms Metras is a person that you truly enjoy doing business with.

Bought in Encinitas, L. Costa

Portia was such a pleasure to work with on the purchase of our second home in Encinitas.  She is a true professional, always helpful and patient in what can be a tedious process, and she maintains a sense of humor all alont the way.  Portia was so easy to work with and always provided quick follow up, and went out of her way to provide diligent communication throughout the search process and in negotiations for the sale.  We would highly recommend Portia to anyone looking for a dedicated real estate professional with an expansive knowledge of real estate in the San Diego County area. 

Sold Encinitas Home for $675, anonymous

Portia recently sold our home in Encinitas within 15 days of listing with a quick closing of 30 days.  She is extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of real estate from listing, pricing and marketing through the paperwork aspects of the sale and the closing of escrow.  She was there with us every step of the way and made our work as simple as possible as the process progressed.  Any question we had, she was ready with the answer and proactive on working professionally with the buyer’s agent in smoothly moving through the escrow closing process.  She listed and sold our daughter’s condo a few years ago and our experience working with her was just as successful.  We would happily recommend Portia to those looking for a skilled and personable agent in this area who has her client’s welfare in mind at all times.

Sold home & purchase in Encinitas, Rob

I would certainly recommend Portia Metras to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  Our situation was different from most in what we were looking to buy – a short sale.  Portia took the challenge without flinching, while other agents would have recommended purchasing a normal sale to finish the sale quickly.  Also, during this process, Portia sold our existing home.  She did a fabulous job pricing and marketing our home and conducting open houses.  Soon, the offers started coming in.  Initially we got low offers, but we were not in a rush to sell and Portia didn’t push us to sell.  Soon thereafter, we received an offer above the asking price!  Once accepted, Portia helped us through the entire process, even when she was on vacation.  She never stopped working for us.  As we were going through escrow on our existing home, the bank finally accepted our offer on the short sale home, and suddenly we had concurrent escrows.  Portia helped us through it all.  Portia was always only a phone call away.  Portia is very personable and patient with her clients, while at the same time being tenacious for her clients.  A perfect combination!

Portia did an outstanding job in the marketing of our home.  She was professional, creative and diligent.  Along the way we built a strong relationship that no doubt will produce referrals and more business for her and CB.  Her transaction team also made things go so smoothly.  What a treat.  We’ll be back…

We couldn’t have been happier working with Portia Metras.  Her amazing customer service went over and beyond any of our expectations.  She definitely was responsible for getting us top dollar for our home as well as serve as a huge resourse to us every step of the way.

Portia was great.  We appreciated her constant communication, always respectful of our privacy and suggestions to better sell our home.  Portia went above and beyond what she should have had to do to get the home sold!
